Se känslosam Snoop Dogg reflektera kring 2Pac-budskap: “All the stuff he was speaking to is happening right now”



 

 

Det har gått hela 26 år sedan Tupac Shakur tragiskt miste livet, men många av hans ord ekar ändå starkt än idag.

 

Detta bevisar Snoop Dogg i en ny intervju med Ari Melbers MSNBC-serie “Mavericks”, där han reagerar på arkivklipp där den bortgångna rapikonen pratar om Svarta pantrarna och hur han använde samma metoder som organisationen för att hjälpa människor genom sin musik.

 

“We was asking with the Panthers; we was asking with the Civil Rights Movement. We was asking. Now those people that were asking, they’re all dead and in jail, so now what do you think we’re gonna do? Ask?”, säger 2Pac i en av sina klassiska intervjuer.

 

“Fuck no”, svarar Snoop instinktivt samtidigt som det går att se att västkustveteranen blir känslosam bakom sina svarta solglasögon.

 

“Now you get it. Even watching that, my spirit is bubbling right now. Like I feel like fuckin’ somebody up from just hearing that, just because I know it puts me in that era, that zone when our voice didn’t matter back then. Things we were speaking to as far as corruption and violence and all that, they would take it and reverse it back on us as if, ‘No, you got a problem. You’re violent’”, säger han och fortsätter:

 

“No. America’s violent. We was peaceful. The Black Panthers was put together to bear arms and do all this peaceful stuff. Y’all came and shot them down and knocked them down, and now we don’t have a voice. And now when we try to speak as rappers, you wanna lock us up and say our music is making people kill each other and this and that, and then we can’t bear arms.”

 

Den sistnämnda kommentaren kan vara en referens till det pågående RICO-åtalet mot Young Thug och Gunna.

 

Snoop Dogg avslutar:

 

“All the stuff he was speaking to is happening right now, but this was 25 years ago. If we don’t stand up and make a difference and make a chance, it won’t change. That’s why we do what we do and we movin’ like we movin’ right now.”
